Award-winning author Robin Lee Hatcher is back with another beautiful love story that gives two people a second chance at love after a tragic twist of fate.
Samantha Winters prefers her life to be safe and secure, and rightly so. She lost her father in a skiing accident a few years ago and has been fearful ever since. Then she fell in love with Nick Chastain, who is a brilliant professor of fisheries and wildlife studies at Oregon State University but also an adrenaline junkie.
For spring break, Nick plans a kayaking trip on the rapids in Colorado. His thrill-seeking ways don't sit well with Samantha, and after one argument too many--and a host of harsh words exchanged-- the couple of six months end their relationship. Once she cooled down a few weeks later, Samantha emailed an apology to Nick. He never replied.
Two years later, Samantha moves to Thunder Creek, Idaho, to care for her grandmother. She is shocked when Nick walks into Gran's hospital room and even more shocked to learn he no longer teaches at the university.
As Samantha and Nick get to know one another again, Samantha decides she should use her time in Thunder Creek to evaluate her life . . . and her fears. Could Nick have changed so much in just a matter of years, or will the call for adventure lure him back to his dangerous ways? Is love worth the risk of heartbreak all over again?
